Short Description: 
In this guest episode, Marc Levitt interviews Prof. Zach Furness about the history of Critical Mass.

This month on the KBOO Bike Show we are looking back in time, broadcasting a national show that covered a topic of local interest.  

Do you remember when Critical Mass was big in Portland? When instead of frothing over "bike lanes vs potholes" the newspapers, radio and TV stations obsessed over the Friday-evening ritual?

In many cities, including Portland, Citical Mass no longer takes place, perhaps because bicycling has become more mainstream, and real improvements to cities have made bicycling more normal, comfortable and safe. Has it been replaced by the World Naked Bike Ride? By Sunday Parkways? But in other cities, such as San Francisco, Citical Mass lives on, despite prioritization of bicycling improvements by city governments.
